Gordon Holmes, a retired engineer and Nessie hunter, reported filming the Loch Ness Monster in its native lake in the Scottish Highlands.

Holmes told History Channel’s In Search Of that the sighting occurred on May 26, 2007, at 10:10 am (see video below).

He was conducting a hydrophone search for the elusive lake monster. But years of patient search did not yield any concrete evidence of a mysterious presence in the lake until one day when his patient paid off.

In a separate development, people in the seaside town of Clevedon, England, reported a mysterious sea creature resembling the Loch Ness Monster in the Bristol Channel off the North Somerset coast.

Loch Ness Monster sighting

Holmes recalled that he had spent a few hours at the lakeside when he suddenly noticed something swimming in the water toward him. He reached for his camcorder and rushed out of his car, slamming the door behind him.

After he slammed the car door with a bang, he remembered he wasn’t supposed to do that because it could frighten the monster away.

But it was too late. The monster had disappeared before he got to the observation spot, a small hill about 70 feet high on the side of the shore.

He waited patiently, hoping it would surface again. Fortunately, Holmes didn’t have to wait too long. The creature resurfaced minutes later to his right, and he was ready for it. He zoomed in with his camcorder.

Nessie footage

Holmes captured an enigmatic two-and-a-half-minute footage showing a dark, elongated, or serpentine creature swimming just below the water’s surface. He could distinguish the head from the rest of the body.

The consensus among Loch Ness Monster experts is that his footage is among the most convincing evidence of a monster in the lake.

Some skeptics argued that the footage only shows an eel. However, researchers who compared the filmed motion of eels with the video claimed that the evidence debunked the theory. Besides, video analysts estimated the creature was about 15 feet long, much longer than any known eel species.

They also estimated that it was swimming at 6 miles/hr.

The latest news comes after Paranormal Papers reported that Nessie enthusiasts were in excitement over recently “rediscovered” Nessie photos.

The photos went missing after Chie Kelly snapped them in 2018, but investigators recovered them. Experts are hailing the photos as “game-changers” in Nessie research.
